About The Speaker
Matt Schley writes about anime for The Japan Times and Otaku USA Magazine, where he’s held the role of Japan editor for the better part of a decade. He’s especially interested in the confluence of business and art from which anime is born, and the possibilities and challenges that new technologies bring to the table. Aside from anime journalism, Matt works as a script consultant for several Japan-focused documentary series on NHK’s international channel, NHK World-Japan. More often than not, he can be found at Meiji Jingu Stadium, cheering on the Yakult.
